Northern Cardinal – Male

Nikon D300, 500mm PF, 1/400. f7.1, iso640

Photo was taken at William M Powell Sanctuary. He perched at bushes near an oversized bird feeder, which is setup by Alan Devoe Bird Club. I believe he was observing me from far and accessing my threat to him at the same time. I tried to stay very still but he just being very cautious. After awhile, he was comfortable with me and started reaching to the feeder for his lunch.

I did some post processing to darken the background and bring up the blue color camera calibration for contrast. Your C&C are welcome.
